Quantum Sails is pleased to introduce its newest affiliate loft Quantum Sails Hamble, serving sailors in the Solent area and across the UK. The loft will be headed by John Reivers and Tom Gall, who also operate SO31, a successful business providing repairs and services for sails, bespoke canvas products and other sailing related products.
“SO31’s core values and business strategy align very well with ours making this a very good fit for both organizations,” says Quantum Sails president Ed Reynolds. “John and his team are known for the quality of their products, services and workmanship, as well as a high level of customer service. We are excited to renew our presence in the UK and welcome the Hamble team to the Quantum network.”
Reivers, who is the General Manager, has a deep passion for sailing, and says the company aims to make a positive impact on customers’ lifestyles by energizing their passion for sailing through the delivery of industry-leading products and customer service. “The partnership with Quantum Sails is a perfect fit for SO31 as we share the same values of quality products and excellent service. Quantum’s attention to detail, quality and meticulous design process also fit well with our customers’ expectations of high quality and excellent performing sails.”
Tom Gall is the Loft Manager and a world-class sailmaker and sailor. Tom has been a part of several exciting projects including the two-handed Transat Jaques Vabre 2007 race as youngest crew member, working alongside world-class sailor Pete Goss as boat captain for his Class 40 ‘DMS’ in 2010, serving as a member of the shore crew for Puma Ocean Racing for the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009 and most recently, sailing onboard Volvo 70 ‘Maserati’ in 2012 for a Transatlantic Record attempt.
